Yarn love!!!

Remember my love for yarn :-) I'd been to commercial Street a couple of weeks back and guess what I got some more yarn :-)

I'd been to Surya Emporium and I must say they have a wonderful collection. They even had ruffled yarn, but I didnt buy them as I felt I wont be needing them anytime soon.

The Crochet Bug....

I started crocheting many months back and my friends say I have picked it up very fast :-) I crave for Friday evenings so that I can find some extra time to work on my unfinished projects.

I love roaming around the streets of Raja Market(Avenue road) in Bangalore looking for yarn and other crochet accessories :-) Commercial street is my next favourite yarn hunting destination. The last time I visited commercial street with my mum, I found a shop called "Surya emporium". Both of us got some yarn. Btw amma's currently working on a carry bag. Here are some pics of it. Cool na ?






I frequently visit Belgaum as my in-laws live there and my crochet craze continued ;-) I happened to find yarn shops very close to our house. Belgaum being a smaller town than Bangalore, all shops are just 5 mins away from home. How I wish it was the same in Bangalore...
Everything's close by in Belgaum... Schools, colleges, eateries, multiplexes, railway stations, airport and what not!! I envy that a lot. Never mind Bangalore rocks!!! :D :D :D

My sister has sent a hook set and some grips for them. I'm just loving my collection :-) :)


Check out my collection of accessories!!!


I love surfing the net looking for various crochet blogs/websites. My favourite is Ravelry. It has an amazing collection of patterns and designs. And thanks to amma, she keeps forwarding interesting patterns everyday. The first person I think of, when I plan to make something new is my sister She loves reading. Have sent bookmarks to her on new years' :-)


Will be back soon!! :-)

Lacy Stole

My friend's birthday was just around the corner and I was trying to gather ideas for her birthday gift. That's when the idea of a stole struck me and I found my next crochet project :-)  After having surfed the net for quite some time , I came across this beautiful pattern. Got some woollen yarn from my local yarn store and I started off. In a couple of weeks time, the stole was done and ready to be wrapped :-)

My friend's happiness knew no bounds when she saw the stole and what else could I have asked for ;-)

Till I post again!

Bloom Bloom!!

Its spring and the BouganVillea plant at my mum's is blooming :-)

My sister loves gardening as much as I hate. But what I don't mind is clicking pics of the plants. Since she's not in India, she insists on having a look at her plants every now and then :-) (I guess to check up on their state :P)

My dad waters them and mum prunes them :-)
Good job!!!

food & fultoo feast :-)

I always felt the days were longer in the small town in Germany than in Bangalore. You tend to get a lot of time for yourself on weekends if you have no functions to attend, no TV time(actually all time in TV time :P) etc. etc.
I had the luxury to experiment in the kitchen even on weekdays which I no longer have :(

This was the result of our dosa craving in Germany :-)







Palak Bahar




Chatpat Jhatpat!!! :-)









Yummmmm!!!






Brinjal Bajji







At the end of it all, my husband lost 6 kilos during our stay in Germany.
Give me a break!!!!!!
